Urban Decay Launch Matte Revolution Lipsticks: Pics, Swatches, Review


Ahoy-hoy, lipstick lovers, have I got news for you. Two years after the launch of their uh-mazing Revolution lipstick line, a pigment-loaded satin-creme formula that seriously blew me away, Urban Decay is adding a matte version to its permanent collection.
The Matte Revolution lipsticks launch this month in Debenhams and House of Fraser in Dundrum, with 11 glorious shades from blackened red (Bad Blood) to bright purple (Bittersweet) and, for the perfect 90s nude, Matte 1993.


I was given Tilt (described as a ‘matte bright orange’), and Menace (a ‘matte medium fuchsia pink’) to play with, and they were the only lip products I brought with me to London this weekend. I didn’t even bring a lip balm, and as my lips are never in great shape after flying, that was a kinda dumbass move. So how did I get on?

Tilt is a warm, coral orange that has a lovely, velvety finish and is opaque in just one swipe. It covers the lips evenly and smoothly and lasted through dinner and several cocktails before I needed to touch up.  It’s definitely in the modern-matte camp which is to say, it has a slightly satin formula – which is what makes it so darned easy to wear.


Tilt has a little bit of sheen, but much less so than any of the original Revolution lippies that I tried (which you can see in action here), and the pigmentation is seriously impressive. I loved it – so much so, that Menace didn’t get a look in (but keep an eye on my Instagram or Snapchat – I’m fluffyblog on both -  as it will get an outing very soon). The packaging – a pearlescent black – is handbag friendly and differentiates it from the original and Sheer varieties.

If you’re a fan of the NARS Audacious lipsticks, these will be right up your alley – and at €19, the price is very pocket friendly for a little slice of high-end, luxury beauty. Are we liking?
